The one who conducted the course is Andy Ong, a self made millionaire by age 26. He started out with only $10 000 put it into a property in Club Street...and now, his annual turnover is $100 over million. He is an amazing entrepreneur who not only is a walking property encyclopedia (locally and overseas), but he is also a restaurateur and hotelier. Amazing! So this whole 3 days program for me was more inspirational than anything.
On the second day of our program, he took us around Singapore to look at property- what to look out for, what to buy and investment strategies. It was fun! We had lunch together and it was nice for him to mingle around with us and just being so down-to-earth with us as we had a good chat especially when he and most of us at the table were Christians./
It was fun as I had the chance to mingle with people who were experienced in property investment- owning properties in London, Australia, Singapore- commercial and residential.
On our last day of the program, a guy called Steven Kuan conducted the program. He talked about the legal, tax matters, the buying process etc. When I first heard this, I thought it would be very boring as its so wordy and technical but Steven made it fun and interesting. He also showed us slides on the developments that were to come from now till 2018. So exciting just knowing which areas will be developed and how awesome it is going to be! I was pretty amazed at what they will be doing to Jurong Area. Jurong will soon have a hotel in that area! Its unthinkable! So, if you are looking into buying a place and work in the west, I would definitely recommend Jurong.
Anyway, after this course, I really cant wait to study the market more and to pray hard for opportunities to invest!
